Print in progress: Stage 5

Some dark grey and brown to bring out the buildings; again, masking to keep the green of the previous layer clean.

Print in progress: Stage 4

More dark green, with careful masking to keep the rest of the image clean.

Print in progress: Stage 3

Darker grey to darker green gradient. Careful placing of the roller on the plate was necessary to keep the border between the grey and green in the right place.
